Dry Fly River Fishing at its best. Beginning in mid June with an exceptional Golden Stonefly & Caddis hatch we dry fly fish throughout the summer to early October matching numerous hatches that nourish these wild rainbow trout.
Join us at Northern Lights Lodge for exciting dry fly fishing on up to  Four different rivers that are so diverse and beautiful you will think you are in a different part of the world each time!

The Mitchell River, Horsefly RiverCariboo River and  Quesnel River and the surrounding waters are home to a unique strain of large, aggressive wild native Rainbow Trout and hard fighting Bull Trout. This unique strain of Rainbow Trout do not spawn until they are seven to eight years old, do not go through the stress of spawning during this period, do nothing but grow and must become voracious feeders in order to survive in their completely natural environment. They live to be 12 to 13 years old and have been described by Fishery Biologists as being a "landlocked Steelhead".The watershed in this area is one of the purest, natural trout habitats found anywhere on the planet.

The Rainbow & Bull Trout in this watershed are among the largest of their species in the world:

The nutrients  released by spawning Sockeye & King Salmon that enter this watershed every year not only attract schools of large trout followig the salmon up the various tributaries, but also draw a variety of BC wildlife, such as Grizzly & Black Bears to tiny Weasels & every native carnivore in between. While Eagles are prevalent all year, guests visiting in September & October are awestruck by the dozens upon dozens of these magnificent birds observed daily feeding on the expired Salmon that have completed their incredible life cycle.

Our professional guides will introduce you, to spectacular dry fly fishing, or, in early fall, site fish for trophy Rainbow & Bull Trout that are feeding on eggs released by spawning salmon using egg patterns & streamers on the Mitchell River, Horsefly River, and Cariboo Rivers. Your guided river fly fishing adventure will excite you & challenge your skills as you pursue these trophy Rainbow Trout in a pristine British Columbia wilderness setting that rates second to none. In addition to these fantastic Rainbow Trout, be prepared to get into your backing as our guides expose you to the challenge of landing a large Bull Trout feeding amongst the Salmon that are completing their amazing life cycle in the natural rivers of this highly protected ecosystem.
